He is risen!

Over the last few months I have been working with some friends to put on a Passion Play, a dramatic retelling of the events of Easter, in and around Priorslee. Rather than doing it all live, as it was done in Trafalgar Square on Good Friday, we filmed it in advance. I played the part […]

What does it mean?

This time last year I was just getting ready to start running the Potters ‘Arf. This year’s participants are gathering now, as we meet, ready to set off at 10:30 on their 13 and a bit mile journey around the city. Just over an hour later the winner will finish, with the rest of the […]

Be kind, rewind.

Telling the Wonders of God

I wonder if you ever watch those TV programmes or films where they have messed around with the timeline? You know the kind of thing, the film starts with a wedding and then the rest of the film is flashbacks to things that have happened in the lead up to the wedding. Through all the […]

What King do you see?

Today is the feast day of Christ the King. I wonder what kind of picture comes into our heads when we hear the word, “King”. I wonder how we react to the idea of someone being King over us? What does it mean to have a King? These questions are difficult enough when we’re thinking […]
